Welcome to the Lord Fairfax Community College Nursing website!

We hope that you will find the information needed to get started in the nursing field. The nursing program at LFCC has a long history of promoting excellence in the nursing community. The Licensed Practical Nursing Program began in 1995 and graduated its first practical nurse in 1996. The Associate Degree Nursing Program began in 2000 and graduated its first registered nurse in 2002.

Students may take general education courses at any of the four LFCC campuses. Nursing programs are offered at the Fauquier campus and Middletown campus.

As a first step, we recommend that you view the online Nursing Information Session where you can learn more about the application requirements and procedures. For additional information please feel free to contact us!
